Whitacre: Out and About. Still No Pardon

It appears that HBO will be revisiting the saga of Mark Whitacre, a whistleblower in the 1992 price fixing case involving the Archer Daniels Midland (ADM) Company. Whitacre has previously been featured on this blog's Pardon Watch List.- an exercise which was already difficult to justify and is now (in the face of almost 600 days of no pardons or commutations) almost impossibly silly.

Last week, the Editor's sister and brother-in-law (business persons in Pensacola, FL.) went to see Whitacre speak on bad decision making by business leaders. It  was an entertaining and informative presentation. His pardon application, which features compelling argumentation and impressive outside support (including support from members of the FBI) was also mentioned, albeit briefly. PardponPower wishes Mr. and Mrs. Whitacre the very best in their effort to have the events of the past framed more properly, via federal executive clemency. See HBO announcement here.
